MacDonnell[edit]

Your suspicion looks to be correct, verified through this obit. I went ahead and added the dates but I thought I'd leave the merging up to you as I'm quite sloppy at it sometimes. Thanks for pointing this out! – Connormah (talk) 05:54, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Connormah, thanks for the research. Do you have access to the full text of that obit? I can only see a snippet of it. Jweiss11 (talk) 07:47, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
By playing around with search terms I did get that he coached at both - [1]. – Connormah (talk) 18:03, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

GA review?[edit]

Hi Jweiss, I am looking for a GA reviewer for 2013 Penn State Nittany Lions football team, and was wondering if you would be interested in doing so. I was hoping to claim some WikiCup points, and thus avoid the backlog. Thanks. Go Phightins! 17:05, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Go Phightins!, sorry I didn't reply sooner. I see that the article has been promoted to GA status. Nice work. Jweiss11 (talk) 05:09, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Dashes[edit]

I was editing a couple of pages the other day and as part of that, I changed some dashes (such as in ones used for a team's record) to the ndash style from HTML. I just noticed that you recently changed some of those on other pages to actual dashes and I was just wondering whether that is the accepted way to do it now on Wikipedia. I'd like to know so that when I update pages I'm not introducing new issues Thanks! Gopherguy | Talk 18:59, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Gopherguy, thanks for the message. I'm pretty sure the generally preferred style is using the wiki-character, not the HTML code. It's more efficient and certainly makes the edit view cleaner and easier to read. Its been my SOP going back to late 2011 to use the wiki-character, not the HTML code. Before then I used the HTML code, so I spend a lot of effort cleaning up my own earlier edits. Jweiss11 (talk) 19:11, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Reasoning for removal of info in navbox?[edit]

Hello, recently you removed some athletic coaches from the University of Houston navbox, but you did not explain your reasoning for doing so in your edit summary. Can you explain what your idea was? Thanks! Brian Reading (talk) 01:02, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Brian, thanks for the message. The issue of navboxes on sports biography pages is one that has been much discussed at WikiProject College football and WikiProject College Basketball over the past few years. The broad consensus is that to manage footer clutter in individual articles and to provide objective consistency across articles, biography articles should not be included in team or school navboxes and those navboxes should not be transcluded on such biography articles. When biography articles are included on such school or team navboxes, the selections tend to lack objective criteria, begging the question why one person is on there, but not another. Navboxes for the succession of particular position, e.g Template:Houston Cougars athletic director navbox do a much better job of providing an objective, comprehensive, and succinct set of relevant links. Jweiss11 (talk) 01:19, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable. Thanks for your explanation. Cheers! Brian Reading (talk) 06:29, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
